Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review

Abstract

Seventy-two patients were examined 9 weeks after sustaining a Colles' fracture of the wrist for evidence of algodystrophy. They were examined 18 months later for evidence of Dupuytren's disease to determine the incidence of the association between the two conditions. Forty-one per cent of all patients had evidence of Dupuytren's disease at 18 months following Colles' fracture. Sixty-seven per cent of patients with algodystrophy had evidence of Dupuytren's disease compared with 19% of patients who showed no features of algodystrophy.
